Lawro's final-day Premier League predictions v rock band Royal Blood

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

BBC Sport's football expert Mark Lawrenson has made a prediction for all 380 Premier League games this season.

The final table based on all of his predictions is at the bottom of this page.

In Lawro's league table, Chelsea and Liverpool finished joint champions and, overall, he has four teams out of 20 in their correct positions, with seven more only one place out.

Lawro has been pitting his wits against a different guest each week this season and his opponent for the final round of fixtures was drummer Ben Thatcher from rock band Royal Blood.

Thatcher and Lawro both got seven correct results, including one perfect score, from Sunday's 10 games for a score of 100 points.

Thatcher says current striker Glenn Murray is his all-time Seagulls hero. "A good dude and a fantastic player - he is focused, he is a great athlete and he scores goals"

Thatcher is a Brighton fan who is looking forward to seeing his side in the top flight next season after their promotion from the Championship.

"If you look at where the club was 20 years ago, getting to the Premier League is an amazing achievement," he told BBC Sport. "It is going to be a great season.

"It will be all about staying up and, with the right signings, it can happen. We might even do a Leicester and win the title - who knows?"

The Seagulls held their promotion parade last week after returning to the top flight for the first time since 1983.

"It was a day that the club will always remember," Thatcher said.

"I won't remember it as well as most people because I got off a plane and went straight down to the seafront and partied hard.

"But it was great to see how excited the whole city was that we had been promoted - it has pulled everyone together and we are all supporting our club."
